EXCLUSIVE: GWYNETH PALTROW BEING COURTED FOR LAS VEGAS RESIDENCYApril 13, 2018

Gwyneth Paltrow is secretly working on a music project, which could see her perform again on stage.
Business associates of Gwyneth say that she is working with producers to develop a live singing show and the insiders say that it could be a Country Strong themed musical.
However, Vegas casinos are bidding to get Gwyneth’s new work Head Over Heels – a musical based on ’80s girl band The Go-Go’s – to Sin City.
And they are attempting to lure Gwyneth as their leading lady and resident performer, alongside the likes of Sir Elton John, Lady Gaga Celine Dion and J.Lo.
The Oscar-winning actress won rave reviews for her vocal work on Country Strong, which released in 2010, and bagged an Emmy for her singing and acting on Glee. She also scored a minor hit with Huey Lewis on the song “Cruisin'” from their 2000 film Duets.
A well placed Vegas source said:
“Gwyneth is poised to make an announcement soon about doing something big here with Head Over Heels. Currently she is one of the producers of the project, which just opened in San Francisco. The inside track is that casinos held talks with Gwyneth to star in it for a few of performances or at the least sing on stage for the launch. The 45-year-old has an amazing voice, great stage presence and huge fan base. The talks are definitely at an advanced stage, and it is a case of seeing whether the deal will be enough to get her signed up as a performer. We’ve been told she has continued to sing, often lays down vocals in LA studios and sounds amazing still.”
The source added: “Back in 2010 there was hopes that she would be involved in a Country Strong musical, but it never worked out. The talk is that a reworking of that show could be a huge attraction.”
In addition, we’re told Gwyneth has been “in the studio working on ideas.”
In 2015, Gwyneth’s ex husband Chris Martin was so impressed with her vocals that he released their duet “Everglow” on Coldplay’s Headful Of Dreams album.
In 2011, she picked up the Emmy for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for her role in Glee. Paltrow played substitute teacher Holly Holiday in the Fox series on three episodes.
